THE METROPOLITANS, by Carol Goodman

Metropolitans

The story: Four very different teens are thrown together on Pearl Harbor Day, and discover that their mission is to pick up where King Arthur and his followers left off in medieval Britain in order to fight the evil that has survived since Arthur’s day–now manifesting itself as the Nazis. But in order to realize their own powers, they’ll have to learn to trust and work with total strangers–strangers who are NOT like them. Can they move past their differences and save the day before a Nazi plot poisons millions in New York City?

 

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: I thought this was an awesome story.  Don’t be put off by the 1940s setting and slang (or the little-kid-looking cover)–by the end, you’ll be rooting for the kids to beat the Nazis and waiting for the next installment!
